*Amanda Gorman delivered a passionate reading of her poem “The Hill We Climb,” at the inauguration of President Joe Biden on Wednesday — making the 22-year-old the youngest ever inaugural poet.
Now, her two books — “Change Sings” and “The Hill We Climb” — already hold the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on Amazon’s bestseller list, and they don’t hit shelves until September, per Deadline.
“The Hill We Climb” is Gorman’s debut collection of poetry.
Gorman’s upcoming releases have topped “A Promised Land” by President Barack Obama (currently in the No. 5 spot).
I AM ON THE FLOOR MY BOOKS ARE #1 & #2 ON AMAZON AFTER 1 DAY! Thank you so much to everyone for supporting me and my words. As Yeats put it: “For words alone are certain good: Sing, then”
